}
The slice_­array template is a helper template used by the slice subscript operator
slice_array<T> valarray<T>::operator[](slice);
It has reference semantics to a subset of an array specified by a slice object.
[Example
:
The expression a[slice(1, 5, 3)] = b; has the effect of assigning the elements of b to a slice of the elements in a.
For the slice shown, the elements selected from a are 1, 4, .
, 13.
